2. How will the NY Jets offense function without Breece Hall, Alijah Vera-Tucker, and Corey Davis?

One of the reasons why Zach Wilson's play will need to take a step starting this week is due to the major injuries that will impact the lineup this week and going forward for the Jets.

With the team losing their two best offensive players for the season plus Wilson's favorite target being out this game, the offensive game plan will have to be very different this week.

Luckily the Jets will be getting back disgruntled wide receiver Elijah Moore as well as James Robinson possibly making his debut for the team upon being traded earlier this week.

While losing playmakers like Breece Hall and Corey Davis makes life harder for Wilson, it's fortunate that general manager Joe Douglas has built enough depth on the team to still have ample playmakers for the Jets to utilize.

The ceiling of what the team can do when those guys are out obviously limits the potential, but the floor can still be relatively high considering there are still playmakers like Michael Carter, Garrett Wilson, the aforementioned Moore and Robinson, and others.

The loss that might end up being the most impactful is Vera-Tucker as the offensive line began to fall apart last week. Wilson will have trouble getting comfortable if he doesn't have time to make plays.

Offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur will be aware of this dynamic and, ideally, should have some plays ready to get the ball into playmakers' hands quickly and in unique ways to take the pressure off of Wilson a bit.
